Women in Christ (LWML)
Dear Sisters of Women in Christ,
What a great planning meeting we had on September 21st for the upcoming year!
Sunday, October 6th is LWML Sunday and our new officers will be installed during both worship services. I ask that all ladies wear purple that day. The official colors of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League are purple and gold. The colors of purple, symbolizing royalty, and gold, symbolizing value and integrity. Look for an LWML Calendar in your church mailbox. Please make sure you get those dates on your calendar and help support the wonderful work Holy Cross LWML does for our Missions!
LWML 2019-2020 Officers: President: Liz Schrader; Vice President: Joan Jackson; Secretary: Diana McFarling;
Assistant Secretary: Open position; Treasurer: Lorie Carter; Assistant Treasurer: Melissa Lambert
For Sale Crafts/Bake Sale is Saturday, October 26th from 4:00-6:00 p.m. in conjunction with the Fall Festival. What are you making? Be thinking small items, less expensive, perhaps Thanksgiving or Christmas oriented? Avoid large projects which can be rather expensive.
Are you baking some goodies? Individually wrapped cookies, brownies, small cakes, etc. work nicely as do scones, loaves of bread, etc. Please mark your items if they have nuts, peanuts, or coconut in them. Whole cakes and pies do not sell as well but all donations are appreciated.
Be thinking along those lines as you prepare for our annual for sale crafts and bake sale at the Fall Festival. Your crafted goods may be brought to the church office during office hours Mon. thru Thurs. 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Fri. 7:00 a.m. to 12 noon or dropped off on any Sunday morning before October 26th. Bake sale items may be brought, Saturday, October 26th beginning at noon. Pricing your items would be appreciated. Any items not sold will be offered for sale that Sunday morning. If you have any questions, please contact Lea Bailey (firstname.lastname@example.org, 817-845-3744) or Diane Cross (email@example.com, 817-460-5047). Profits from the sale will go to support the Gebauers Mission to the Solomon Islands. Last year we raised $537.21. Can we top that this year?
We will need a few good workers for that day. If you can help out in that way, let Lea Bailey or Diane Cross know.
Serving the Lord with Gladness!
